We thought they had it all until this past Saturday, when we realized, Fiesta had outdone itself. Behold, a dad band performing live at the entrance:

The Oak Cliff streetcar will start running between Union Station and Methodist hospital sometime between October 2014 and February 2015. This morning, we noticed workers digging ruts along Zang, just before the Houston Street Viaduct, and these stacks of rails ready to be installed in them.
